Rescue crews are on the scene of an accident where a semi has destroyed a house.

It happened around 4:00 p.m. in the area of 26 Mile and North Avenue. Police say the home's owner has told them the house was unoccupied.

The driver of the truck suffered only minor injuries.

Police say a westbound tractor trailer blew a tire, lost control and then crossed the center line, striking a silver F-250. The truck then continued through the house, before ending up next door at the Meade Cemetery. Several headstones have been damaged.

The driver of the F-250 also suffered minor injuries.

Police say drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash.
